Jesus said to him, “Away with you, Satan! for it is written, ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve only him.’” Then the devil left him, and suddenly angels came and waited on him.
Matthew 4: 10 - 11

Read Matthew 4: 1 – 11

As we read these verses from Matthew, we can see that this is a very difficult time for the Son of God. Jesus Christ is being persecuted by people like you and me; Jesus is facing this persecution because of our sins.

This Lenten season we have many lessons to learn. Among others, we learn to be people of courage, to rely on God. Matthew 4:11 teaches us to rely on God and all our things will go well as we would want them to go. The second lesson is that when we stand on the truth even the enemies will be ashamed and will leave us.

When we repent, we talk with God in surrender and humility, intending to be forgiven for all our sins. For the scriptures say, “though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be like snow.” (Isaiah 1: 18a) This shows us clearly that our God is not a failing God.

Lord, give belief to the people who lack it and guide them to the right path. Amen.
